5. “Nature willing received honor and respect; But grace faithfully attributes all honor and glory to God.”

6. “Nature is afraid of being put to shame and despised; But grace is glad to suffer reproach for the Name of Jesus.”

7. “Nature loves idleness and bodily rest; But grace cannot be idle and willingly embraces labor.”

8. “Nature seeks to have things that are curious and fine, and does not care for things that are cheap and coarse; But grace is pleased with that which is plain and humble, rejects not coarse things, nor refuses to be clad in old clothes.” 

Thomas a Kempis
